  • All-new three-row crossover makes every seat the best seat in the house and offers comprehensive standard and available safety technologies
Dubai, UAE, January 14, 2019:  Cadillac expands its popular crossover and SUV lineup with today’s global debut of the 2020 XT6. 
 
Created to make the most of passengers’ time on the road, this all-new three-row crossover centers on a luxurious, adaptable and connected cabin, complemented with responsive handling and a comprehensive suite of standard and available safety technologies. 
 
“The first-ever Cadillac XT6 delivers a compelling blend of spaciousness, safety and convenience features for customers who thrive on doing it all,” said Steve Carlisle, Cadillac president. “It joins the all-new XT4, which has soared to the top spot in its segment, our global best-selling XT5 and the iconic Escalade to accelerate the brand’s global growth, with a spirit that is uniquely Cadillac.” 
 
Every inch of the XT6 has been carefully considered and developed to offer a refined, comfortable place to connect and enjoy the ride. 
 
“Every seat is the best seat in the house,” said Carlisle. “From luxurious appointments, comfort and convenience to premium sound and technology features, every passenger gets an optimized experience.”
 
Vehicle highlights:
  • XT6 offers a comprehensive suite of standard and available driver assistance and safety technologies1, along with generous cargo capacity.
  • The latest Cadillac user experience, with intuitive controls including a rotary controller with new jog functionality. 
  • Premium Luxury and Sport models offer customers more customized looks with unique exterior and interior distinction.
  • Nimble, responsive driving experience, powered by a 3.6L V-6 engine and nine-speed automatic transmission, offering up to four selectable driving modes. 
“The new Cadillac XT6 models provide two expressions of the signature Cadillac experience, allowing more personalized appearance and driving character,” said John Plonka, chief engineer. “Premium Luxury models provide an elevated level of refinement, while Sport models offer a performance-oriented feel.” 
 
Refined Luxury, Comfort and Convenience
 
XT6 advances Cadillac’s contemporary interior aesthetic, with elegant, wide surface lines and simple interfaces. It’s an expression that focuses attention on the quality and authenticity of materials and impeccable craftsmanship.
 
Distinctive trim and interior colors delineate the Premium Luxury and Sport models. Premium Luxury models are trimmed with exotic wood decor, while the Sport features performance-inspired carbon fiber trim. 
 
Available comfort features help ensure all passengers have a luxurious experience in every seating row, including Cadillac’s first Bose® Performance Series sound system with 14 custom-tuned speakers delivering immersive, powerful audio throughout XT6’s cabin. Additional available features include semi-aniline premium leather-appointed seating; Cadillac’s in-vehicle air ionizer; automatic heated/ventilated front seats and heated second-row rear outboard seats, and a standard automatic heated steering wheel.
 
Additionally, XT6’s available convenience features help keep drivers and passengers connected, confident and in control, including:
 
• Adaptive Cruise Control – Advanced.
• Night Vision.
• NFC phone pairing and wireless charging for compatible phones3.
• HD Surround Vision Camera1.
• Illuminated Cadillac Crest hands-free liftgate.
• Keyless Open and Adaptive Remote Start.
 
A standard power-folding third-row seat and remote fold-down feature for the second-row seat enhance versatility, while a tip/pitch-and-slide feature on the second-row seat allows easy access to the third row.
 
Safety and Driver Assistance Features
 
XT6 offers a comprehensive suite of driver assistance and safety technologies1 that can help drivers be more aware of their environment. They include sophisticated radar-, camera- and other sensor-based technologies. 
 
Further, the vehicle structure is designed to help keep occupants safe, with premium body materials and features such as boxed, splayed front rails and a state-of-the-art restraint system, including seven standard airbags. 
 
Thoughtful, Seamless Connectivity
 
Thoughtful technology integration is central to the XT6’s mission of offering a seamless and intuitive in-vehicle experience. It elevates connectivity to a new threshold for Cadillac, with some of the brand’s most advanced features.
 
The latest Cadillac user experience5 provides more ways to interface with the system, including one-touch phone pairing via Near Field Communication and a new rotary controller with intuitive jog functionality.  And when it comes to plugging in, all models come with six USB ports2 (two for each row of seats). 
 
Additional available driver support and connectivity technologies include:
 
• Personalization — user profiles stored in the Cloud6 allow customers to access their custom profile in other properly equipped GM vehicles.
• Updated navigation7 functionality with natural address entry.
• Capable of supporting SiriusXM 360L.
• 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot (includes 3GB or three months of data, whichever comes first)8.
• Apple CarPlay9 and Android Auto10 for compatible smartphones.
• Next-generation, 15-watt wireless charging3.
• Teen Driver.
 
Design Distinction

The foundation for the XT6’s expressive design is its strong proportions, with distinct personas for the Premium Luxury and Sport models. 

“The XT6 is unmistakably Cadillac,” said Andrew Smith, executive director of global Cadillac design. “It reinterprets our design language in a unique way, with the Premium Luxury and Sport models adding more sophisticated or aggressive character depending on preference.” 

Bright Galvano exterior accents distinguish the Premium Luxury model, while the XT6 Sport is defined by darker accents and more aggressive, performance-inspired details, including available 21-inch wheels. Both models feature advanced lighting technology, including vertically emphasized LED signatures. Two headlamp variants are offered: a standard bi-function LED projector design or an available, performance LED headlamp system with a three-element projector array.

Driving Dynamics and Propulsion

The XT6’s driving experience offers a rewarding balance of responsiveness and refinement, with a feeling of solidity that enhances 
driver confidence. Those qualities are uniquely distilled between the Premium Luxury and Sport models, with a greater emphasis on road isolation in the Premium Luxury and a greater feeling of agility dialed into the Sport’s chassis tuning.

Customer-selectable drive modes allow the XT6 to adapt even better to driver preferences and changing road conditions. The modes are uniquely calibrated to support the characteristics of the Premium Luxury or Sport models. 

AWD is available on Premium Luxury and standard on XT6 Sport. The Sport model features a Sport Control active twin-clutch AWD design that helps enhance the driving experience with active yaw control. Sport models also feature Continuous Damping Control active handling and a faster steering ratio that is tuned to support a more enthusiast-level driving feel, with increased feedback and greater overall responsiveness. 

The XT6’s sophisticated driving dynamics are powered by a 3.6L DOHC V-6 engine estimated at 310 horsepower (231 kW) backed by a nine-speed automatic transmission featuring next-generation Electronic Precision Shift. To enhance fuel efficiency, Active Fuel Management technology enables V-4 operation when V-6 power is not required.

The 2019 XT6 makes its public debut at the North American International Auto Show Jan. 14-27 in Detroit. It will be manufactured in Spring Hill, Tennessee, and available for ordering this spring. Pricing and additional information will be announced closer to the start of production.
